The Alana Jones-Mann blog put together a recipe for an unusual cake that is inspired by a classic comfort food. While pizza is traditionally thought of as a savory dish, this recipe puts a new spin on the conventional pizza pie.

Upon first glance, the dish appears to be a pizza with cheese, pepperoni, mushrooms and black olives. In reality, this deceptive dessert is in fact a delicious cake. The realistic-looking toppings are made using different types of candy such as red Starbursts, green apple licorice and Tootsie Rolls. The clever use of sweet ingredients creates the illusion of a realistic pizza pie.

Although the recipe draws inspiration from classic comfort food, this delicious creation tastes nothing like the average pizza.
